It’s no secret that music has been very much intertwined with the Zelda series for years, nor that fans are not only smitten with the tunes themselves but the instruments that appear in the games as well. There is one instrument, however, that is easily the most iconic as a representative of Zelda: the ocarina. While it’s been fully possible to get a hold of one of these funny little instruments since the release of Ocarina of Time, a new Kickstarter campaign is hoping to meet all your ocarina needs. Head inside for more!

Before I begin, it’s probably best that I explain the appearance of myself and the existence of this panel in brief detail. My name is Jordan Mizzi, a new writer from Victoria, Australia. I’ve wanted to do analysis articles for years now, so I’m absolutely ecstatic for the opportunity to work on my favorite video game series here at Zelda Dungeon. So, I bring to all of you: Deku Notes, where I comment on the interacting elements across the entire…

If you’ve ever dreamed of having your own personal Ocarina of Time, then that chance is finally yours! Online retailer Davincisroom.com is selling a replica of the legendary instrument from Ocarina of Time. Whether you can actually play it or not (and if you can, props to you!), this is a prime chance to pick it up, as the product is on sale with a $30 price cut.

As you can see from the image to the left, this instrument looks striking and is certain to please many a Zelda fan. Not only will you get your own hand-crafted (did I not mention that part before?) instrument, but along with each order comes a detailed handout on how to hold it and play some of the wonderful melodies from OoT.

If you’re at all interested, make sure to head to the website and grab one! I’m sure this sale won’t go on for long.

Greetings once again Zelda Fans. This week’s Collection Spotlight offers us another unique stockpile. While lacking many games, Karina has focused on the pronunciation of her name to build and make her collection one of a kind. Also included is a must-have for every Zelda collector in this week’s Collection Selection. Hit the jump to see more.

Last week’s Collection Spotlight showcased items that many of us wish we could have but will probably never see again. We saw hundreds upon hundreds of items as well as record breaking thousands upon thousands of comments. This week exhibits a much smaller collection but still very unique. 14-year-old Aaron is a relatively young and new collector who has a vast amount of our favorite games on virtual download. Hit the jump to explore Aaron’s collection more.

Fans of the Zelda series and country music are in for a treat. Youtuber Nathan Smith has posted a song that combines the soulful tone of the country genre with lyrics full of iconic Zelda imagery. Titled “Dawn of the Third Day,” it can be heard in its entirety after the jump.

Hopefully this week’s Collection Spotlight proves that the size of a collection is not what makes a collection impressive. A collection is not measured by how many books and games someone has. 14 year old Seth is a shining example of a passionate and driven collector. While his collection might appear small to some, it still retains every bit of individualism and uniqueness which marks it as a very impressive horde. Hit the jump for more!

It is always great to see celebrities post on the web about their love for Zelda, and any other video game really, but what we tend to see very little of are such posts coming from sports players. Julian Vandervelde, offensive lineman for the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFL and self-proclaimed nerd, has tweeted an ever-so-popular Ocarina of Time joke, showing us that the stereotypical line between jocks and geeks is slowly fading away. Check out the tweet after the…

Queen Gohma is a famous Zelda boss. Her first main appearance in Ocarina of Time led to a similar boss in Twilight Princess called Armoghoma. Even though Queen Gohma is an enemy, that doesn’t stop people from creating fantastic pieces of artwork inspired by her! Jump in to read more!

Hello readers! Brian here with the fifteenth edition of “The Best and Worst of Zelda.” This week we’ll be continuing where we left off last week! Don’t forget to comment your ideas for future topics below! Musical instruments have become not only helpful items, but thematic staples in the plot of a Zeelda game. This, I believe, begins in Ocarina of Time and carries through many future games in the series. As we had made it through every game up…
